Lake Wobegon Days Summary


Lake Wobegon Days is the marvellous chronicle of an imaginary place named after an Indian word meaning 'Here we are!' or 'We sat all day in the rain waiting for you.' We learn about the town's beginnings - the first explorers, the Unitarian missionaries who came next, the first school, and the Norwegian and German families who made their homes here.Filled with warmth and humour, sadness and tenderness, songs and poems, Lake Wobegon Days is an unforgettable portrait of small-town American life.
